Town of Wallkill, NY – New York Blood Center (NYBC), one of the largest independent, community-based blood centers in the world, will host a blood drive on Wednesday, July 3rd at Galleria at Crystal Run to help meet a need for blood donations in the region and throughout the country. The NYBC will be located on the lower level in front of JC Penney making it easier for shoppers to conveniently give the gift of life while shopping. Guests are encouraged to make an appointment online or by calling 800-933-2566.

NYBC is declaring a blood emergency due to a significant drop in blood donations. In the past three weeks, donations have been 2,100 units short of what is needed to meet hospital demand, placing a strain on the region’s blood supply heading into the summer months that are typically marked by a spike in traumas.

“The New York State Department of Health supports New York Blood Center’s urgent call for blood donations as we experience blood shortage supplies throughout the state,” said State Health Commissioner Dr. James McDonald. “We encourage all who are eligible to schedule an appointment to donate blood. Just one selfless act of blood donation could potentially save multiple lives and help those suffering from traumatic injuries, undergoing surgery or fighting illnesses, as well as new parents and premature babies.”

“While the summer months bring warm weather and joyful gatherings of family and friends, each year our hospitals receive an influx of trauma patients that need our help and require blood transfusions for treatment,” said Andrea Cefarelli, Senior Vice President at New York Blood Center. “As we enter trauma season, we are asking New Yorkers to give back and make donating blood one of their regular summer activities.”

“Galleria at Crystal Run is proud to partner with the New York Blood Center to continue to help our local community members during this time of need,” said Eric Price, General Manager at Galleria at Crystal Run. “Thank you to everyone who has made an appointment for the upcoming Blood Drive.”

To make an appointment, donors can call 1-800-933-2566 or visit nybc.org. Can’t donate blood? You can still support NYBC’s mission by texting ‘NYBC’ to ‘20222’ to give $25.
